Celebrating W3C's Tenth Anniversary

In 1994, Tim Berners-Lee created the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) to "Lead the Web to its Full Potential." This year, W3C celebrates its tenth anniversary, and the Consortium is organizing a one-day symposium (1 December) for Members and invited guests to reflect on the progress of the Web, W3C's central role in its growth, and risks and opportunities facing the Web during W3C's second decade.

The symposium program will consist of the following sessions about the Web to the present:

  • How It All Started
  • Impact on Science and Industry
  • Impact on Society and Culture;

and the following sessions about the Web into the future:

  • Web of Meaning
  • Web Everywhere
  • Web for Everyone.

Discussion will be led by Web pioneers, prominent technologists, industry leaders and press personalities. The day will end with reflections and projections by W3C Director and the Web's inventor, Tim Berners-Lee.
